Hi Gair,
Looks like PD can't find libgsl on your system. libgsl is used by pidip. 
So it's actually pidip that's giving you the error and not pd. Anyway, 
since it was working at some point, that must mean that you had it on 
your system and you might still have it but in a different place. See if 
the finder can find something containing libgsl. If it does, don't move 
it as it might mess something else up. Simply open a terminal, cd 
/sw/lib/ and then sudo ln -s /the/true/location/of/libgsl.0.dylib

That's basically the same as creating an alias.

If you do have to reinstall gsl, I think 'fink install gsl' will do the 

best r.
